Hazelrigg, Clara H., teacher, author and evangelist, was born at Council Grove, Kan., Nov. 23, 1859. Her father, Col. H. J. Espy, was an officer in the United States army, and her mother, whose maiden name was Melora E. Cook, was principal of a girl's school in Toledo, Ohio, at the time of her marriage to Col. Espy. Soon after their marriage they came to Kansas, where the father's regiment was on duty. The mother died in 1861, and the little daughter was taken to Indiana. In 1866 she returned to Kansas, but upon the death of her father in 1868 she again went to Indiana, where she attended school, and at the age of fourteen years commenced teaching in a private school. She also taught in the public schools of Ripley county, Ind., and on Dec. 27, 1877, she was married to W. A. Hazelrigg of Greensburg, Ind. In 1883 she and her husband removed to Kansas and located in Butler county, where Mrs. Hazelrigg resumed her work as teacher. She attended business college at Emporia and was elected superintendent of the Butler county schools. In 1895 she published a History of Kansas, which shows evidence of considerable research and literary ability. This is her best known literary work. Later the family removed to Topeka, but their vacations are spent upon Mr. Hazelrigg's ranch in New Mexico. Mrs. Hazelrigg has devoted much time to active church work, and has won a wide reputation as an evangelist.
